CHARLOTTESVILLE—Healthcare is one of the fastest-growing sectors of the US economy, driven by the country’s burgeoning and aging population. Not surprisingly, commercial real estate investors are highly attracted to the healthcare real estate niche and are ready to invest.

But overall growth is not the only reason why, says Ben Ochs, CEO of Anchor Health Properties. “While the niche sector is traditionally recession-resistant, healthcare facilities of investment quality are typically anchored by long-term leases with investment-grade health systems or dominant physician groups, and usually generate higher cash yields than other asset classes.”


As concerns loom about a coming economic downturn, investors know that healthcare real estate niche is traditionally recession-resistant. The sector benefits from triple-net leases and high tenant renewal probabilities associated with “sticky tenancy.”

“The lower risk and stability of returns offered by the sector causes it to be viewed as a safe and attractive place to generate reliable, long-term returns,” explains Ochs. “Further, its “safe status” is one of the factors driving record investor interests in recent years.”
